Short Breaks

Information on Wiltshire's leisure opportunities scheme for those aged 6 to 18 with an EHCP

Wiltshire's Short Breaks Scheme, designed in consultation with parents and carers, enables eligible children and young people, who have special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), support to access activities and leisure opportunities.

This additional support comes in the form of three options for children and young people, together with their parent carers, to choose from.  This allows them to think creatively about how they want to spend their leisure time, and choose what works best for them.

The scheme runs on an annual basis, from April to the following March.  Eligible families are required to re-apply for the scheme each year between January and the first weekend in March.  Late applications will not be accepted unless there are exceptional circumstances.  Children and young people who become eligible for the scheme from March will be awarded a reduced entitlement.
